Normandy will always hold a special place for me. The drive overlooking the cliffs were spectacular and the strolls were astounding as well. It gives you a totally different perspective of the entire scene. Enjoy it!

I visited during a tour while on a repositioning Holland America cruise in April 2018. This is nice to see the length of the beaches around the D-Day battle. Includes a small town, Arromanches-les-Bains in France, that is super to walk around. I recommend!

Best views from this drive are during low tide when the equipment used to form the man made harbour are most readily visible. If you are lucky this will be near sunset one day (tides depending) when it would be at its most spectacular. 2264oos

Here you see the landing beaches of both Américain and British soldiers and you see the port they needed to come on shore.

Wonderful views along the coast, worth the walk up from the beach to see. A Sherman tank stands overlooking the artificial harbour.

Excellent view of the landing site of Gold Beach. Definitely come up & have a look, even if you don't intend to go to 360 Arromanches. You get a real sense of the scope. Take the free train/team if you'll have a hard time walking...More
